Welcome back to the Proje’ blog! This week, it’s time for a summery focus – and what could be summerier than washing your car outside with epic levels of foamy suds? Not only is that the perfect way to cool off in hot weather, but it’s fun – and at Proje’, we believe that fun is the most powerful weapon in your detailing armory.

When it comes to a good old-fashioned car wash, there’s a lot of room for fun. Soapy suds flying everywhere and hosepipes or buckets full of water all just lend themselves to sunshine and family fun. Who doesn’t love a water fight? But if you want to really double down on the enjoyment – and the results – you’ll want to upgrade those suds into a full on foam. And the best way to do that is by adding a bit of pressure, which means getting a cannon involved!

But buying a foam cannon isn’t just something fun to do in the summer. In fact, it’s the safest way to wash your car without adding any extra scratches and swirls. The foam cannon method is so effective because it maximizes the amount of suds that come into direct contact with your vehicle and completely eliminates the possibility of any scratching or swirl stains caused by human error. If you cover every square inch of your bodywork in pH neutral suds, you’ll get mazing results more quickly than you ever could have dreamed.

Of course, the economy level of your car wash also goes up, because the pressure involved with creating foam results in huge coverage with just a small amount of product. So, eventually, your cannon will have paid for itself!

Pressure Wash or Garden Hose?

At Proje’, we have two options for you to choose from: The Pressure Wash Foam Cannon ($79.99) and the Garden Hose Foam Cannon ($49.99). But which one should you pick? Let’s look in closer detail.

Pressure Wash Foam Cannon

There is no better way to get maximum suds than with the Proje' Pressure Washer Foam Cannon. Using a foam cannon is the safest way to wash your vehicle and avoid adding scratches and swirls. The Proje’ Pressure Washer Foam Cannon is a high-pressure cannon that will generate enough suds to cover your whole vehicle in one go!

This foam cannon will have your car looking like it’s been in a snowdrift, and this is great because every inch will be covered in fast-acting, pH neutral suds. The massive water reserve means that you can fit a whole 2oz. of Vital Car Wash Soap in with another 28 oz. of water, resulting in enough foam to cover your whole car without the need for a refill. Just unscrew, fill and reattach the container to your foam cannon unit and then watch the suds fly! It’s like your very own foam party, but you’ve invited your car!

The pressure in this cannon is all hand-held and 100% portable, so you can point and press just like a fire extinguisher. Really let fly and cover your car (and your kids) in suds!

Garden Hose Foam Cannon

The Proje' Garden Hose Foam Cannon is the perfect addition to any detailing arsenal. The attachment connects to most standard garden hoses, allowing you to get super suds without the use of a pressure washer. This time, it’s the velocity of your water supply that helps create the suds, and it is effective. With the garden hose foam cannon your still experience that fun snow-globe effect that will result in your car being completely covered and cleaned from roof to wheel.

The Verdict

So, if you don’t have great water pressure to your outside tap or a nice long hose, you might want to consider the handheld pressure washer. Otherwise, it’s a 50-50 split!

How to Use a Foam Cannon

If you follow these three tips, you’ll ensure that a little goes a reeeeeeeal long way:

  • Give the cannon a shake

Work up that pressure and really maximize the suds! Don’t be afraid – it isn’t going to explode!

  • Top to bottom

Starting at the top and working down will ensure you completely cover your car from head to toe!

  • Don’t forget to dry!

Don’t just rinse the suds off with water; dry your car too. This will ensure that no swirls or streaks dry on to the paintwork. For this, why not check out our Ultimate Drying 25 x 36 Towel? You won’t regret you did!
